Deco Gone Mad

January 29, 2014

Kendra and her brother Tyler are avid collectors of anything vintage. They started their collecting as children and want to share what they have with others. Together they wanted to start a business that provides space to those who want to sell vintage goods. Kendra and Tyler also will sell their vintage collection.

Kendra and her brother Tyler are avid collectors of anything vintage. They started their collecting as children and want to share what they have with others. Together they wanted to start a business that provides space to those who want to sell vintage goods. Kendra and Tyler also will sell their vintage collection.

 
They came to the Angelo State University • Small Business Development Center and met with Adviser Paul Howard. Even though they are brother and sister, Paul suggested they develop a partnership agreement between them. He also suggested writing a business plan to help with the planning of their business. Kendra says, “We attended seminars and got one on one help. The SBDC put us in contact with Downtown San Angelo which helped us find our location.”


San Angelo now has a new (vintage) business to help San Angelo’s economy grow by creating two jobs and having space for other small business owners.
